- Watson Soda Fountain & Lunch Counter, 116 E Chapman Ave., ☎ +1 714 633-1050, fax: +1 714 532-6531. M-Sa: 6:30AM-9PM, Su: 8AM-6PM. There are few places like Watson Soda Fountain & Lunch Counter left in America, and even fewer in Orange County. With formica and chrome, "Liver and Onions" on special, and red checkered tablecloths with swivel stools to match, it oozes nostalgia without even trying. Both a functioning drug store and a diner, its interior is a space so eeriely classic, so suspended in a long forgotten decade, that I half expect Andy Taylor to mosey in, saddle up at the counter, and order a slice of apple pie and a chocolate malt -- which just happens to be a specialty of the house.
